If a spacecraft was parked on Venus and needed to make a flight to Jupiter, how far would it need to travel? (Assume both planets are aligned with the sun and are on the same side of the sun.) Show your work and provide your answer in scientific notation. Lets say Venus is 108,200,000 km from the sun and Jupiter is 778,500,000 km from the sun

    In scientific notation, it would be 6.703 x 10^8 I believe
